That being said, Rep. Ron Paul (R-TX) is not a nut-job, not stupid, and in the attached video you will see that in many ways - when he is right, he is right.
A rare moment here, I am going to throw a bone to the Paulians.
Full disclosure: last Paulian I mentioned, Peter Schiff? Well - the WSJ just took him apart the other day. In case you can't get past the paid fire-wall - the executive summary is that if he had your money, last year you would be half the man you were in 2007.
